Jeremy Kyle makes rare public appearance on first day of Glorious Goodwood

The under-fire telly presenter was in a VIP box at the Surrey Downs but looked less than impressed with the race results.

Jeremy has been laying low since his daytime talk show was axed over a guest’s death.

Steve Dymond was found dead a week after he failed a lie detector test.

One onlooker at Goodwood said yesterday: “We were surprised to see him out and about after what happened. He didn’t look happy, obviously he hadn’t backed a winner.”

Not that he needs the dosh –Kyle reportedly pocketed a £3million payout after the daytime show was binned.

And the controversial chat show host was in line for another half a million by winding down a media company used for his pay from ITV.

The company, called Jezza Ltd, has assets of £539,953, according to official documents.

One person who looked much more jolly was former Chancellor George Osborne who was all smiles in his own box.

The former Tory MP beamed his best public schoolboy grin as he checked out the day’s race schedule.

Crowds at the first day of Goodwood had to brave gales and downpours.

The Met Office issued a thunderstorm warning with heavy rain and high winds sweeping the famous track.

But a soggy morning and a huge lunchtime downpour didn’t stop race-lovers from dressing to the nines flocking to have a flutter.

Stradivarius stormed to a hat-trick of Goodwood Cup wins, becoming the first horse to triumph in the prestigious race three times in a row.

Stradivarius is now undefeated in eight successive races.

Ridden by Frankie Dettori, the 4-5 favourite won by a neck from Dee Ex Bee.

The five-year-old, trained by John Gosden, became only the second horse after Double Trigger to win the two-mile prize on three occasions.

“He’s a jockey’s dream. He’s a bit of a boy, he knows he’s good,” said 48-year-old Dettori.

“He’ll never be flash and win by 10 lengths. He follows any pace. He’s got that burst, goes to the front and thinks he’s got enough. All I have to do is put him there and he does the rest.”

And Dettori’s mount Cobra Eye won by a nose in the next race.
